PS C:\Users\tobwe>

At the end of the 10 days, you will be a lot smarter, and made friends with PowerShell. And you’ve probably done your career a great favor (provided it relates to IT, but hey you can always control your Tesla sports car using PowerShell, too, if that is what you want).

Which raises the question: where is the plug? Why are we doing this for free?

“Honey, no ‘P’-Word at the dinner table!”Because we love to share stories about PowerShell and amazing things that can happen (and our families eventually stopped us from doing so at dinner). Because we strongly believe in community and helping each other. Because we produce sophisticated PowerShell tools that you may want to eventually buy and make us rich. Because we love to fiddle with things. Because we learn so much by creating these tutorials. In a nutshell: because we are passionate about PowerShell. After all, isn’t passion the drive for the weirdest things?
